take a look at what's happened in the last few weeks, they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech at the u.n. he said six times, he talked about the youtube video. look, if we're hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi, a place we knew there was an al qaeda cell with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they're frying to blame the romney-ryan ticket for make thing an issue. with respect to iraq, we had the same position before the withdrawal, which was we agreed with the obama administration. the vice president was put in charge of the negotiations by president obama and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a status of forces agreement because they failed to get one. that's
and implicit in is what the u.n. ambassador susan rice said on television in that five days later actually about it being a spontaneous demonstration responding to the video, a copycat demonstration of what had happened earlier in cairo was not correct, and then they in turn from the u.n. mission keep saying there was an intelligence memo and everyone is standing in a circle pointing the finger elsewhere. >> it has the same sort of ethos of what happened after 9/11. when you go back and look -- the original 9/11, a lot of data points that might have been able to point to a danger here, point to some issues related to security. we see this now because this was a country that had been involved in historic revolution, had been a hot spot and we're being told that ambassador stevens had wanted greater security. some discussion about when the duty date for some of the members of that security team had expired that he had requested more, that was not done. some of the issues about resources, about judgments made at the time. now that something this awful has occurred, it puts a different light o

directly conflicts the description of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. this was on september 16th, five days after the attack. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copy cat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted of course by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> that from the obama administration again on september the 16th. yesterday, october the 9th, the state department says there were no protests outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi. today congress is set on to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether or not the administration initially down played the link to terrorism. >>> in pennsylvania, jerry sandusky, the former defensive coordin
here has been very success phil, especially using his u.n. speech, to put iran and sanctions center stage. the question for the israelis though, which president is going to take a tougher line with iran? obviously the prime minister here feels as though a president romney would take a much tougher line in the debate. vice president biden spent a lot of time trying to assure everyone that the under an obama administration, iran would not be allowed to get a bomb but privately a number of israelis really question the resolve of the obama administration to take the steps necessary for iran or possibly a military strike. jamie? jamie: leland vittert, live in jerusalem. leland, thank you so much. bill: now the morning after how are the two campaigns playing this debate today especially after exchanges like this one? >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that is $3200 benefit cut. >> that didn't happen. >> these are from your actuaries. >> more people signed upper for medicare advantage after the change. >> mr. vice president -- so
there was no understanding or no agreement from the u.n. that diplomacy was given some time to work. >> it's great we got multilateral sanctions through the u.n. security council. unfortunately the price we paid for getting china and russia to buy into the sanctions was that the central bank sanctions would not be included. everyone agrees across the political divide in the united states who follow the issue closely that the central bank sanctions are the ones that had the real bite. the administration resisted efforts in congress repeatedly to get sanctions in place. you can cite, as they often do the economic implications. it's not clear to me why there were economic implications in 2009-2010 but not in # 2011-2012 but they said it would under mine the diplomatic strategy reaching out to the ayotollah, unconditionally trying to get unconditional talks. they were silent when there was a genuine protest movement in iran that would have put political pressure on the regime. all the moments whether it was economic or political pressure in 2009 and 2010 the administration did nothing because they believed t
and mouse game. >>guest: it is. we had prime minister binyamin netanyahu go to the u.n. and he made his case at the u.n. for not letting this happen, his case to the global community and now we see iran, whether they are trying to assert how close israel might be to a strike or picking out targets they may want to hit in retaliation, but one thing that is important for people to realize, drones can be used for surveillance but they can be used to deliver weapons. there is a reason that israelis have gas masks that are handed out to the citizens. this is a real concern about that and we know syria has chemical weapons available. therefore it is likely they could end up in iranians hands and end up with hezbollah. >>shepard: the bigger concern going on what is -- going on in syria, that could throw things off. >>guest: certainly a ways that the iranian would like to divert attention about being the west against iran, is to make it islam against the little satan and the great satan, israel and the united states and turn this into a religious conflict globally. that is something we have to keep

that wasn't true. they perpetuated that lie in the u.n. when our u.n. ambassador said it was because of a youtube video, she knew better, and the president certainly did. the truth does come out. the cover-up is sometimes worse than the crime, but not in this instance when an ambassador is dead and three other americans as well. megyn: hindsight is 2020. he looked back with our ambassador dead and three others dead, we can see that security was not adequate in benghazi. but it is disturbing to hear about this according to colonel wood, that not only are we going to reduce what we have in place. >> you know, there are a couple of observations that i have to make. just three weeks ago, this happened. certainly, this serviceman has the right to speak out about what he knows. but it passes as strange to me that right now, efforts being made to buy these folks and bring them to justice, it may be disinformation. i know that brad will find this shocking, this information may assist in the effort. we do not know. wait a second, brad, to rush to judgment on this, simply because it is four we

issue that we continued to raise. >> i would point to an august 20 cable at u.n. officls ev sit t ng a unquote. unwilling to take on anyone with powerful patrons or from powerful tribe. this cable says incidents anyone this surity vacuum as they rer t igh ouoite 4. in their memo they highlighted a septemr 1 maximum alert. a maximum alert. september 1. this was the information that was coming. and what'surng ha hed oro t r consulate is bombed twice. the british ambassador has an assassination attempt and you are arguing whether the number was 5 or 2 or 5 or 3 andhe security experts who have been sos a f t ne wood. did participate in requests for additional personnel in libya and what was the consequence of those requests? >> yes, i did epio teqr or ach as they dealt with s.s.t. support. i review some of those document and assisted in the preparation of those. i would like to add also that eti- ppss frustratiromhe the second request for extension that occurred in april 5, ambassador cretz encountered difficulty in understanding what was going on. wastionti sis .o. a.o. i gim togher wi
straight? former u.n. ambassador john bolton is here. so, are you satisfied? >> no, look, the administration made up its mind what the reality was, whether it was engagedin a coverup, whether it was ideology that dominated the view, whether it was incompetence, at this point, we don't know the answer to that. but we know one thing, unmistakeably. they were flatly wrong. they got it wrong before the attack, they got it wrong after the attack. they are getting it wrong now. so we psychoanalyze them all we want, but this is a demonstration, these people cannot be left in the same room with national security. >> greta: you say they are getting wrong, they have got it wrong, but it's more than that. why are they still dog it? why are they still trying to sell us that? jay carney today, in the statements he made today, initial assessment and the immediate aftermath of the attack in benghazi were made, it was a government-wide assessment that the foundation of what ambassador rice said, was the video. that is patently wrong, last night the state department said in a conference c
and arm syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves. while a u.n. investigation found regime forces most likely responsible for the killings and said that rebel forces were also guilty of murder and torture and several radical islamic groups emerged in syria. president obama recently promised to send the syrian rebels another $45 million. the u.s. already shipped food, medicine and communications gear but no lethal weapons. some former military officials say it is time to do more. >> that does not mean the u.s. should put boots on the ground. but our leadership should be felt, it should be visible. >> reporter: now, by most estimates, the syrian regime has thousands of battle tanks and a regular supply of ammunition of iran to fight that kind of armament you're talking about giving the rebels things like shoulder-fired rockets and there is a concern that sending those types of weapons in could fall in to the hands of terrorists. that's the big difference with president obama's regime or his administration i should say. he's been advocating trying to keep it a low intensity co
there heard that the consulate was under attack, and they went there. they didn't h u.n. ker down were in safety, they rushed there to go help. this is the american way. we go where there is trouble. phraus. >> we go where we are needed. [applause] alisyn: we are watching that hearing. more of the testimony in a moment with kt mcfarland and general jack keane. major developments to tell you about in the nationwide meningitis outbreak, the death toll rising to 12 across ten different states. jonathan serrie is live in atlanta, give us an update. >> the death toll rising because of a new case confirmation. officials in florida have confirmed that a 70-year-old man who died back in july was indeed a victim of this fungal men me meningitis outbreak. we should point out that this particular form of meningitis is not transmissible from person-to-person. it involved people who received steroid injections to their lower back. there are now 120 cases in ten states. the outbreak was initially traced to a fungus that apparently can tomorrow natured three lots of injectable pain medication compoun
. again, this contradicts directly what was said by the u.n. ambassador, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. and it contradicts essentially what the administration had been saying for five days after we reported that intelligence officials had within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack. this comes ahead of committee hearing tomorrow on capitol hill where a house oversight committee will start calling witnesses. they have uncovered a full list of some 230 security incidents that happened in the year before. on the consulate. and the area around the consulate. in libya. and one of the congressman who just got back from libya talked about that today. and state department response. >> twice in the lead up to this attack on 9/11 compound in benghazi was bombed. twice the british ambassador had an assassination attempt. we were moving in 9/11 and now the white house wants to say we had no direct information. no actionable intelligence. are you kidding me? where else in the world was the consulate bombed twice? >> i'm not going in timeline details what we had when and whe
failed and what should be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. >> ear here he is in may at that fund raiser in boca raton with a lot of wealthy people arguing the best thing to do was accept that it remained an unresolved problem. let's watch his very different approach to people he viewed, i think, as more hawkish even than him. here is mitt romney behind closed doors. >> i don't think the palestinians want to see peace anyway for political purposes, committed to the destruction of israel and these thorny issues and i say there's just no way. what you do is you move things along the best way you can and hope for some degree of stability but realize it's going to remain unsolved. >> that's the policy over there. we're going to wait things out. >> you know, i was the first person to see that tape, and it was one of the few moments other than the 47% moment that kind of stung me. because i knew that he had supported the
it was triggered by the youtube video. this despite the fact that u.n. ambassador susan rice repeatedly called it spontaneous. the president's top counterterrorism adviser met with the libyan president today and discussed the effort to track down those responsible for the attack. of course, this is an election year and certainly politics to all this. democrats say they have been completely left out of the oversight investigation. being led by republican chairman issa. mitt romney recently made the attack a focus of criticism of the president on foreign policy. let's put it through the "spin cycle." first context. i think issa would have more credible if he didn't try to make a scandal stick to the president. he was the one that was behind the fast and furious and all male panel on contraception. the idea of him conducting a nonpartisan unbiassed investigation is just ludicrous. second of all, we should point out that republicans actually cut half a billion dollars from embassy security funding and hillary clinton actually said at the time that that could be detrimental to america's national se
. tomorrow is the united nations international day of the girl, which the u.n. says is about highlighting, celebrating, discussing, and advancing girl's lives across the globe. and tonight on the eve of the international day of the girl. this girl, one of the bravest girls in the world, a 14-year-old is lying near debt after being shot in the head and the neck on her school bus yesterday for nothing more than wanting an education for herself and other girls. religious extremists planned to assassinate her on her school bus. the man who got on the bus and shot her and got away is, no doubt, very, very proud of himself tonight. his spokesman certainly is. yes, homicidal religious extremists have spokes menmen in pakistan. ehsanullah ehsan sent a letter to the media today defending the assassination attempt and his defense of the assassination attempt contains specific sigh takings from the koran. the spokesman said, whom so ever leads a campaign against islam and shariah is ordered to be killed by shariah. he has never lead a campaign against islam but religious extremists see that differen
point was the response to the initial question on libya. >> they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say this is because of a protest and youtube video. >> that is exactly what we were told by intelligence community. >> by who? >> the intelligence community told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened. they changed their assessment. >> joe scarborough this morning, as well as in "the daily standard," they said this that biden throws the intelligence community under the bus. what's your thought here? was the vice president not aware of the congressional testimony that happened on tuesday? the full tick tock that had come out? it didn't sync with his answer, necessarily. >> i think there will be more to be said on this today. i'm not going to prejudge what might come out of the state department. let me just say this. what i find disgusting, and american people should find disgusting, on the night this was happening, before we knew the ambassador had been killed, mitt romney decided to politicalize a tragedy in the middle east. >> that is what the vice president said.
missions. >> that u.n. stirred up. >> bill: i like my union but what i don't like is the municipal unions it's not the fault of the workers who have now negotiated contracts that we can't pay. that's what happened in wisconsin, that's what's happening all over the place. your state, california, bankrupt. it can't pay the pensions. >> i see the municipal workers and the teachers as being the last preservation of organized labor in this country. we borrow and borrow and borrow and borrow but now it's all coming to the end because they can't borrow any more money. the workers are going to have to take it on the chin a little bit the municipal workers. they are just going to have to. >> just take iou's. >> bill: all right. you want an iou from jerry brown? good luck. >> not particularly jerry brown. >> bill: the folks just can't afford it anymore. >> we can't afford it if our taxation system in this country became legitimized. >> bill: in france they want 75% to tax people at the high end. 75%. >> i'm not at the high end. >> bill: come on now. i mean mary tyler moore lou grant show. >> why ar
at the u.n.? >> when mitt romney left the campaign for exhaustion, barack obama was putting in 19 hour days. jenna: hold on a second. brad and sean, i think, i think we've -- >> that is ridiculous, sean. that is insulting. jenna: if you're a presidential fund raise and you also can't be tired? is that what you're saying. >> that is what sean is suggesting. >> i think there is a difference --. jenna: if you will, brad, talk about these priorities. one of the messages that seems to becoming out of all this talk about the debate is that the president did not prioritize the practice and preparedness you need to enter into the debate. that is why he didn't look as good as some might expect. how do you answer the criticism the president did not look prepared? >> i think if you go back and look at his answers i think he certainly looked he certainly looked prepared. mitt romney had sharper and more energetic performance. it was, as robert gibbs said a performance. it is easy to do well in a debate when you're not willing to confront your own policies honestly. he lied about his tax plan. he lied a
of state hillary clinton and the u.n. ambassador, susan rice. so what are they going to say? there is a separation between those two and the rest of the state department and the white house? what side will they be on? >> steve: because to many, it looks like there has been some sort of cover-up going on and hillary clinton at the ends of her tenure as secretary of state, the last thing she wants, 'cause she wants to run for president, is a full blown scandal. but that's what -- >> gretchen: the last thing president obama wants as well is a full blown scandal 27 days from the election. >> steve: sure. but the thing is if her state department is out there, you know, pushing through susan rice, it was spontaneous, it was about the movie when it wasn't, the one thing that hillary is on the griddle for responsibility wise is the security. would they all be dead today if they had the proper security? a lot of people are asking themselves that. >> brian: right. by the way, i am looking for a scandal. so if you're interested. by the way, mitt romney was getting -- he's getting more
them, and i think there were a couple of very important moments. that came essentially from the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, and in the testimony by ambassador patrick kennedy, which we expect to hear, he says that any official who was in -- was testifying at that particular time that she did, which was on the 16th five days later, the 16th of september, five days after the attack, would have said the very same thing. it was based on the information that was known at that particular moment. you are already setting up, you know, some would say that the administration lied. in fact, chairman isa said that the administration misled people. now, patrick kennedy from the stat department, he is the under secretary for management, and he is saying no, that is what we knew at that particular point. there are some other interesting moments, fred, as we go through this. we can discuss it if you want, but i think that's one of the key things. >> it is, indeed. so we also just learned information that the white house has sent john brennan to libya. he has been meeting with senior libyan officia
with the fact in libya we overthrew qaddafi and probably intended to all along even though the u.n. resolution just talked about protecting libyan civilians a year ago. with syria we're obviously at a fundamental impasse on how to handle did dilemma. what you're seeing a bit of frustration, vladmir putin a proud man and obviously back in the presidency doesn't think he needs american money. you know he is probably right at one level. idea of giving foreign aid to russia is counterintuitive given how well russia's petroleum sector is doing at this point. so it is not all crazy but it does cause some concern given that it seems to have a little bit of spite behind it as well. jenna: looking at just the overall context as you mentioned because a couple weeks ago i think it was about a week and a half ago, we learned certain u.s. aid organizations operating inside the country are essentially getting kicked out. they can't operate in the country anymore. because we're on the eve of this vice-presidential debate and we've seen back and forth between the president and governor romney on russia we wan
the u.n. on all of these things. >> you don't go through the u.n. we are in the process now and have been for months in making sure that help, humanitarian aid, as well as over aid and training is getting to those forces that we believe, the turks believe, the jordanians believe, the saudis believe are the free forces inside syria. that's under way. >> last question. is it possible that nuance works here? that's what we're talking. we th >> i don't even hear the nuance. we're going to arm our opposition. that's what we're doing. >> what biden said there is not what they did in iran with the student uprisings over two years ago when you had the opportunity to really make a difference on the ground there. >> by the way, the guy who led the opposition and uprising supports a nuclear iran. it gets very tricky. anyway, thank you, michael. if he got in power, he'd be doing the same thing. thank you, michael steele. thank you, gene. >> coming up, our group of undecided voters. this is what i love. stay with us. customer erin swenson bought from us online today. so, i'm happy. sales go up...
. >> they suspect the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in a speech he said six times, he talked about the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the ryan-romney ticket for making this an issue. >> steve: of course, that's what they were talk being yesterday. so who won? cnn and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time
